Crown & Bridge
When a tooth’s structure is compromised, a crown reconstructs the tooth back to optimal form and function. A crown is usually made of ceramic, composite material or gold in some cases.
During the first step, your tooth is prepared to make room for the crown. Next, the prepared tooth is scanned, and the creation of the crown begins. The process of creating the crown begins with your dentist taking an impression of your teeth. This impression is then sent to a laboratory where an expert technician builds a model of your mouth. The lab then works closely with your dentist to design your crown, using the model as a reference. Once the crown is ready, your dentist will make final adjustments and cement it directly in the clinic. Once completed, your tooth is now restored to optimal shape and function.
